The Channel Islands are peopled by small cultivators. A boiler explosion has occurred on the premises, of Messrs. Howroyd and Oldroyd, drysalters, Dews- bury, and three men were seriously hurt, and a good deal of damage done to property. The Weymouth Town Council have resolved to pay 100 guineas to the executors of Mrs. Sherren for possession of a great number of ancient documents and records relating to the town, some of which date 500 years back.

The tramway from Naples Observatory to the foot of the cone of Mount Vesuvius is nearly completed, and will be opened early next year.

THE AGRICULTURAL DEPRESSION.—Lord Leigh, Lord-Lieutenant of Warwickshire, believing the depression to be temporary, has decided to return to his tenants at the Michaelmas rent audit 15 per cent. of the rent on arable and 7 per cent. on grass lands. Similar returns will be made for the two next years. ine Autumn season of her Majesty's Theatre will he^in on the same night as the New Yorli Academy of Music, and the theatre will be managed during Mr. Mapleson's absence by his son, who is the husband of Madame Marie Rose.

The Army and Navy Gazette says that the Army Reorganisation Comtiiittee, under the presidency of General Lord A.irey, will shortly reassemble at the Wai Office. The committee is not expected to conclude its labours until the close of the year, as it finds the task it has to carry out of far greater magnitude than was at first supposed. The War Office will consider the advisability oi issuing a general medal for South Africa, when the prtsent operations are brougbtto a peaceful conclusion, but as yet the subject has not been even mooted offi- cially, and the announcements which some time since appeared stand no chance of obtaining confirmation for the present.

HOLLOW AY'S OINTMENT AND PILLS.-During every break of wintery weather exertions shonld be made by the afflicted to recover health before unremitting cold and trying storms set in. Throat ailments, coughs, wheezings, asthmatical affections, shortness of breath, morning nausea, and accumulations of phlegm can rea- dily be removed by rubbing this fine derivative oint- ment twice a day upon the chest and neck. Holloway's treatment is strongly recommended with the view of giving immediate ease, preventing prospective danger, and effecting permanent relief. These all-important ends his ointment and pills can accomplish, and will surely prevent insidious diseases from fastening on the constitution to display themselves afterwards in those disastrous forms that will probably embitter life till death itself is almost prayed for.
